OMG. As in, PaleOMG. This is quick, fabulous and SO flavorful! Try it – you’ll love it. Ok, original recipe here and below, my mods in [XXX]. Enjoy!

I doubled the recipe – FYI. That’s where my measurements come in.

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients
  • 1 medium spaghetti squash [two small]
  • 2 chicken sausages, diced [chicken apple sausages, so good! x5 – well, probably 4.5 since I was eating some along the way…]
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk [1.5 cup]
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth [1 cup]
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced [three large spring onions]
  • 1 garlic clove, minced [when is one enough??? I used four]
  • 1 bundle of spinach, stems removed [I cut off the bottoms, then chopped]
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped [used dried x2]
  • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon, finely chopped [used dried x2]
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil [used dried x2]
  • 1 tablespoon choice of fat (I used bacon fat) [grapeseed oil]
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise, and remove the seeds and excess threads.
  3. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and cook for 20-25 minutes. [so, I put my halves in water and boiled for 30 minutes since I didn’t want to turn the hot oven on. Works the same, drain the water and use a fork…]
  4. While your spaghetti squash is baking, pull out a large skillet and place under medium heat.
  5. Place a tablespoon of fat in your hot skillet then toss in your minced garlic.
  6. Once your garlic has become fragrant, add your diced onion.
  7. When you onion has become translucent, add your vegetable broth and coconut milk.
  8. Then add your seasonings, salt and pepper, and diced chicken sausage and spinach. Cover and let simmer for about 3-5 minutes.
  9. Once your chicken sausage is cooked through, use your fork to to de-thread your spaghetti squash and add your threads directly to your chicken sausage mixture.
  10. Use tongs to combine.
  11. Consume!! [seriously, we COULD NOT stop eating this. SO GOOD!!!]
